Today is my birthday. I am officially 27–or as I like to call it “rounding up to 30”. Yes, I know, technically 26 also rounds to 30. I didn’t say it was logical.
This morning, my lovely partner gave me my birthday presents. I was very excited because he had been talking about them for the past week, asking whether I was excited. I thought I was…until the first thing I pulled out of the bag was:
I was…confused. I mean, it’s a decent movie. In fact, I’m rather fond of it, even though it’s not a great movie. So fond of it, that I already own it. And he would know that, if he’d looked in the dvd drawer. I tried to act like I was pleased, but I failed miserably. He told me it was a joke gift. It didn’t seem very funny, but I was willing to let it go.
Trying to make the best of it, I examined the “Deluxe Edition” special features (I was underwhelmed).
T – “So, are you going to pull some of those tricks on me?”
Me – “What? Why would I do that? We’ve been together longer than 10 days…”
T – “Doesn’t mean you still couldn’t use them.”
Me – “I’m pretty sure if those tricks would drive you away at this point, we shouldn’t be getting married.”
T – “Yeah, but you could still get rid of me, you have enough time.”
Me – “Whaaa?”
T – “Because there’s 10 days left until the wedding.”
Me – “OHHHHHH!!!”
And then it was funny.
10 days left and I get to have presents like that for the rest of my life. Sweet.
